    Very Bad : WV State Trooper Shot & Killed

    Sketchy details on this, no clear motive unless drugs or alcohol was involved with the now-dead perpetrator.

    It's sad when a Law Enforcement Officer gets killed just doing his job. May he rest in peace and prayers for his family.

    Sounds like there were 2 fatal errors made,"Handcuffed in the front","Missed finding the handgun during a search".With all the ways there are to carry a concealed firearm nowadays I would thoroughly search a suspect and especially the crotch area,There are a lot of times that LEO's find guns/knives/drugs hidden in the back of cars after transporting a prisoner,this time a missed gun turned deadly

    We all hate searching the crotch area. Yes I've found drugs hidden later on but have just been lucky that no one has gotten a gun by on me. Can't lie though, during a frisk I missed a Kel Tec .32 once. Luckily I found it on a subsequent search incident to arrest.

    While I am saddened at any death, I would have to say, this was piss-poor police work here. The surviving officer will need to be evaluated to see if he is suitable material for an officer and if he is, retrained.
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.
